Course Overview: Safeguarding Training for Taxi Drivers

Taxi drivers provide thousands of children and vulnerable adults with transport every day. This could involve taking them to school and back, to a hospital appointment or further afield. As well as providing vital transport services, taxi drivers can also play an important role in the safety of the clients who use their services. 

The Caredemy Safeguarding Training for Taxi Drivers online training course provides valuable information on safeguarding for vulnerable adults and children, helping you to protect them from the risk of abuse, neglect and human trafficking.

What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding means protecting individuals from neglect, abuse and exploitation. It is the process by which children and young adults who use a particular service are protected from harm and provided with access to a safe space.

Passing an online safeguarding training course will help you to spot the signs of abuse or neglect and identify the best course of action to take. 

Why do Taxi Drivers need safeguarding training?

There is no legal requirement for taxi drivers to undertake safeguarding training, however your local authority or employer may have their own rules which say that you need to hold a safeguarding training certificate. 

There have also been proposals put forward by the Department for Transport which would require every UK taxi driver to pass an enhanced DBS check. This illustrates the growing importance of safeguarding for taxi drivers.

You will learn what child and adult safeguarding is, how to demonstrate due diligence and how to protect yourself in your role as a licensed taxi driver.
